http://www.nytimes.com/2014/04/28/us...y.html?hp&_r=1Belinda Padilla does not pick up unknown calls anymore, not since someone posted her cellphone number on an online forum for gun enthusiasts. A few fuming-mad voice mail messages and heavy breathers were all it took.
Then someone snapped pictures of the address where she has a P.O. box and put those online, too. In a crude, cartoonish scrawl, this person drew an arrow to the blurred image of a woman passing through the photo frame. “Belinda?” the person wrote. “Is that you?”
Her offense? Trying to market and sell a new .22-caliber handgun that uses a radio frequency-enabled stopwatch to identify the authorized user so no one else can fire it.
Intimidation and bullying is why I don't care for gun enthusiasts very much. If they had a valid reason or argument they wouldn't need to use such tactics.
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
